Kelli's notes for this recipe:
Wondering what to do with all your summer veggies? This casserole dish is the ticket! Stumbled across this one on the internet. It was delicious. I used a little more pasta and cheese than what the recipe called for because I knew my kiddos would probably pick out the pasta.

Whoops- I forgot there is also 2 cups of chopped tomatoes! I edited the recipe ingredients but it may take awhile for it to update.

Sounds almost like the recipe I have done for years except I use rice instead of Ziti pasta
